How can Travel Consultants help Small Businesses Save Money?
Do you feel that your small business can’t afford business travel management consulting? In reality, small businesses really can’t afford to not have help from professionals to arrange and manage business travel. Here’s why your small or medium sized business will save money by using business travel management:
Professionally Designed Travel Policies Lower Costs
You might think that making your own travel arrangements is the cheapest. Perhaps your travelers search the Internet for their own deals. However, employees spend a lot of time making travel arrangements and they often are making choices blindly, not knowing if they really got the best possible itinerary or the best possible hotel location. In fact, studies show that small businesses spend more on travel than larger ones. Here is how GTI business travel management can lower your business travel costs::
- Travel management can streamline your travel policy practices.
- Good travel policies lower overall costs of business travel.
- GTI’s network of contacts with airlines and hotels gives you lower rates for better accommodations.
Business Travel Consultants Keep Travel Budgets On Track
Another cost savings of using management travel assistance is that you can track business travel costs better. With professional consulting about your travel, you will be able to:
- Prioritize business travel and decide when and where to cut costs.
- Keep your business travelers compliant with travel expense budgets.
- Track your business travel expenses and do a cost analysis.
The long and short of it is that travel management services save you money because you will have a better corporate policy to guide choices and a way to keep your employees to follow the policies.
Save Money By Keeping Travelers Safe
Nothing can cost more money and anguish to your company than a business traveler who encounters theft, a medical emergency, or an unsafe situation. When your business arranges all of the travel, you also take on all the responsibility for arranging for help in any emergency and covering the costs of any change of plans. Hiring business travel planners can save you not only money but also time and anxiety because:
